Children and skin allergy
Children's skin is increasingly exposed to allergenic substances at a young age. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the substances your children use in their daily lives, so their risk of skin allergy can be reduced.
There is increasing use of lotions, deodorants and makeup by children and adolescents. These are products that may contain, e.g. perfume or other allergenic substances. This means that, very early on and for long periods of time, children and adolescents are exposing their skin to substances that can cause skin allergy.
The risk of developing skin allergy increases the longer you remain in contact with an allergenic substance. Therefore, there is a higher risk of children developing skin allergy when their skin is exposed to allergenic substances early in life.
Once skin allergy, always skin allergy
At the same time, it is important to remember that, once you have skin allergy, you will have it for the rest of your life. Therefore, it makes sense to pay extra attention to what products children use.
Skin allergy can be very unpleasant. Some children find it embarrassing and that it inhibits their desire to maintain a social life. It can also have an impact on their choice of job later in life as there are certain types of work that do not always go well with skin allergy, such as hairdresser, baker, mechanic or nurse.
